"In April 2017 the Government introduced a requirement for Local Planning Authorities to publish a Brownfield Land Register by 31 December 2017. A Brownfield Land Register is a list of sites that have been previously developed that are potentially suitable for housing-led development.
Brownfield land is land that has been previously developed, although it excludes land and buildings in agricultural/forestry use and residential gardens.
NKDC is currently working towards producing its Brownfield Land Register, and is holding a public consultation to obtain information about potentially suitable sites. This consultation will close on Friday 15 September."
Currently, two sites have already been identified in Nocton:
- Land behind Village Hall, Main Street
- RAF Nocton Hospital and Nocton Hall
